Happy New Year!
It’s time to start planning what games you’re going to invest in this year. I’ve compiled a list of all the games I’m personally looking forward to. There’s going to be some games missing that you may be excited about, but hey, this is my blog!
I won’t include any VR-only games or games that are on the fence with a 2016 release date. The reason I’m not including VR games isn’t because I’m not excited about any of that (I’ve already owned a DK2 unit and I’m a strong believer in our current technology with VR), but it’s because I just don’t want to. If I did, 100 Foot Robot Golf would be at the top of my list.

No Man’s Sky is a giant space exploration game from the studio behind of Joe Danger. This project is the complete opposite of what Joe Danger is, so it’s going to be interesting if they can pull it off. The key feature I like about this game is being able to find a planet that’s never been discovered, scan all of it’s details including plant and monster life, but also name it whatever you want. I plan on visiting Butt Planet as much as I can.
If you were to ask me a few years ago if I cared if indie games were coming out, I’d have shook my head and called you a hipster. There were a few games that stood out such as Torchlight, Minecraft and Super Meat Boy. But nothing really excited me until I tried out Hotline Miami and switched from an indie-hating gamer to someone who saw potential. My hatred was mainly from buying so many awful, yet recommended, indie games on Steam. I can’t even begin to tell you how many stupid rougelike games I have that aren’t any fun at all. And there was something unappealing from the indie-only fans, much like the problem I have with PC-only or console-only gamers. But that’s then and this is now. I really enjoy a host of indie games and while my PC is still heavily used for quirky titles, my PlayStation has been really good at putting out a collection of high quality indie games that remind me of why I’m a gamer.
Ya know. To have fun!
So I decided to compile a list of PlayStation brand indies coming until the end of this year that I’m excited about. I’d do the same for the PC, Wii U, 3DS, and Xbox One, but for the sake of this blog post, I’m sticking with Sony’s brand.
